Arrived late after a long stressful drive but was made so welcome that after a great meal (and wine) soon relaxed! Very comfortable room, excellent food and really lovely owners. Will definitely be back!
Nous avons passé qu'une nuit, mais c'était formidable, un acceuil des plus chaleureux. En arrivant Julie nous a offert une bouteille d'eau fraiche et des draps de bain pour la piscine. Une soirée en table d'hotes très agréable; Un petit déjeuner très très copieux rarement vu depuis 10 ans que nous faisons les chambres d'hotes. Allez y vous ne serez pas déçu.
The farmhouse is beautiful and in idyllic rural surroundings whilst being close enough to the main roads to allow easy access to other places. Gary and Julie are kind and friendly and made us feel very welcome with nothing being too much trouble. Excellent food and hospitality- we are sure to return.
